I don't begrudge the players earning as much as they possibly can before their used-by-dates are reached. And I tend to agree that they ARE the product, so deserve a share of revenue. The current 26% doesn't seem unreasonable to me.

CA really hasn't indicated why they want to change the existing model, have they?

Power.

Sutherland might yet perish in this fight, so it could be a good thing yet. I wonder whether his son is signed up with the ACA?

SO who are the stars of Grade cricket around the country? Or are they members of ACA as well?

The word is that Sutherland has told his son he will be choosing cricket over footy and young Will accepts this.

The player perhaps have to be careful in a climate of dwindling tv revenue and falling crowds, save for the Ashes. Channel Nine will probably be the only bidder for the rights and they have financial concerns of their own. Sutherland and co. were hoping for more on the back of the BB juggernaut.

Agree that the players are the product, but they have to be mindful of the market forces.

Of course, Red. But it's the players who want the percentage of revenue model so it's their risk.

I see in this morning's news that CA has rejected ACA requests for mediation.

Ruling class tory nobs like Sutherland and Howard are in their element.

Hope the former's kid opts for AFL and waves two fingers at daddio, Scotch College and the brownie establishment running cricket and Oz (and AFL).

As a cricketer he is a mercurial mid order bat and fast medium trundler - sounds a lot like Mere Marsh. As an AFL player he is big bustling and kicks straight. 

I hope the kid overcomes his brown shirt upbringing and has a crack at footy.

Never thought I'd ever think so but in this case I agree....but he'll have to learn to tie his own bootlaces to succeed in either.

hehehehe! I know it's hard to back well paid professionals but I just hate sports administrators.

As much as I hate T20, if they use it to ensure test cricket especially at the expense of ODIs (at least T20 only pretends to be cricket) they can still get a decent funding package. But they won't or can't because corporate Oz is incestuous.

A deal of some sort will get done before the Ashes. There's too much to lose (on both sides) for it not to.

Aye Nath. That's the difference between this and WSC. Then the players had nothing to lose.

Was a reasonable medium fast swing bowler in suburban grade comp but could at best be described as a cow corner specialist at batting.

I' will need to complete rehab. It will be difficult to keep, let alone being timed out when getting to the wicket to bat. But who knows, maybe using a crutch may help my historically woeful batting.

Still nudging, nurdling, and lobbing speculative pies. Took one catch out of 6 offered last year ... can no longer see let alone throw from the boundary to the middle.

Trying to work up the motivation to learn to run again. Looking forward to ending my days playing decently in a comp that takes itself only a little bit seriously.
